This book is an impressive piece of research and presents a detailed, even exhaustive study, of the experience of these exiles daily lives. ... The rescuing of these obscure and largely politically insignificant, certainly marginal, figures, makes the study more fascinating, and Di Paolo’s achievement in providing such a comprehensive study, including its biographical appendix, a more impressive achievement.
